PIA - Raspbian time out connection to VPN

Post by xsy77 » Mon May 07, 2018 8:18 pm

Hi guys,

Long time user without any issues.... until now.

Using a Raspbian build of Kodi on my Raspberry Pi and can’t get it to connect to my PIA VPN for love nor money.

I have another Kodi build by a different development team that OpenVPN works flawlessly. I have raised a support request on Raspbian’s forum but they are says no since I can’t get openvpn to work from Command line, it must be not be their tool’s problem.

Log where issue lies:

Basically as soon as the VPN connects, I lose internet. Any ideas?
